Little worried bout his upside before...now Bradshaw on the scene.

my RBs are Spiller, TRich and Pead, qbs are RG3 and Schaub. 12 team non ppr...

I give Ballard...2.9 rookie and my rd 2 next year

I get Rivers...2.4 rookie and his 3rd next year.

Thanks

I don't really see how this helps your team. You are dealing Ballard to move up a few spots in the second round of this year's rookie draft and getting Rivers? (Am I understanding that correctly?) You already have 2 QBs who would be better starters on your team. I feel like Rivers is just as useless as Ballard.

I agree. Looks like a wash and you drop a round next year. No point to me.

Bit of negotiation..he is willing to accept 4.12 this year...instead of 2.9...gotta jump right?? Im wprried bout rg3 and matt (being a dynasty) and see rivers as a massive buy low.

If you want to carry 3 QB's and it makes you feel safer, then go for it. Are you still swapping next year's pick? I would be a lot happier about this if that wasn't there. You are trading away an unknown for a little insurance but if you have faith in Rivers, then go for it.

I like the deal actually because I think Rivers can have a rebound season under Mike Mccoy.

I think even when Bradshaw leaves the Colts are going to draft a RB or sign a big name FA, the writing is on the wall with regards to how they feel about Ballard. He's a mediocre talent.
